Access NYC Computer Terminal
The Crown Heights Community Mediation Center now has an Access NYC computer terminal. This new service will help community members learn if they are eligible for over 35 different city, state, and federal human service benefits programs at one time. New Yorkers can access this information in one of seven languages, English, Spanish, Haitian-Creole, Arabic, Russian, Chinese, or Korean. If you or someone you know is interested, please call 718-773-6886 to make an appointment with a Mediation Center staff member who can help you through the process of beginning an application for a variety of public benefit programs. Once you find out which programs you are eligible for, you can print out the application and the agency office locations where you are able to file the applications.
